How many times have we heard or even said ourselves, “I may have thought it, but I didn’t say it?” We think somehow that it’s okay if the bad comment doesn’t come out of our mouths. The Bible has a lot to say about our thought life too.
It matters as much to God what we think as it does what we say. I know that millions of thoughts run through our minds every day and that Satan sneaks in bad ones as often as he can but learning what the Bible says will help us combat his efforts.
Let’s look at just a few ways that God tells us to deal with our thought life.
If we are honest, we will admit that many of our thoughts do eventually end up coming to our mouth, so we need to deal with them in the beginning stages. God has given us so many blessings to ponder. Let ’s not waste time on Satan’s agenda.
May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:14) (NIV)
